So as i'm now a fully paid up member and been to my first group event today ( Gaydon ) i shall now introduce myself Properly.

My two cars are a 1989 SD3 213S and a modified R8 414SLi , i am currently a Coach /Truck driver and love my classics both trucks and cars . I'm Coventry based but originally from Birmingham ( Erdington ) . I have owned mnay Rovers over the years including Metros, both Austin and Rover, ( my last Metro was M287MUK , my first SD3 was a base model in White D187YAN then a Rover Montego 1.6L in Gunmetal grey G409LYA ...i can say now that the Montego is the best car i've ever owned. Then the Metro that one of my old bosses bought off me for his daughter i then owned M418JPM a White 418GSDT before moving onto two 800's and then 75's . So as you can see i like my Rovers......

Thanks for letting me join and looking forward to many more events

Good to see another SD3 owner joining us, there has been an increase in interest in SD3s over the last couple of years and we have a few forum users with them.

Hope to see you at Milton Keynes!

That's an extensive Rover ownership history :clapping

Well guys, I have to say it's been really good to meet some of you at the couple of events we have had . It's a nice friendly group.......I have added another R8 to my Collection .K227CKV a Silver 216SLi , It's only done 50k but the bodywork looks like someone has gone over it with a brillo pad. So once the 213 gets sorted ( it comes off the road next week ) then the 216 will be having a cheap blow over . I did say i had room for a third.....and thats what iv'e done......

Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2021.....Oh if anyone wants to quote me for the 213 and the 216....feel free
